Sun Protection

Did you know that up to 80% of visible skin ageing is caused by sunlight? Or that UVA, the sun’s most ageing rays can penetrate clouds and glass (and in contrast to UVB there is no warning sign of burning with UVA)? The single, most vital anti-ageing step you can take for your skin is to apply daily sun protection with broad-spectrum SPF30-50. For many people, a barrier to wearing a high protection daily sunscreen is that they think it will be inevitably thick and greasy. Forget those sticky, sand-magnet holiday lotions – things have changed! Savvy cosmeceutical brands have developed highly effective sunscreens with lightweight, non-greasy textures that feel great on the skin. There are even SPF30-50 moisturisers for breakout-prone skin.
